2. External mods would be almost none, the car would be kept clean, but i've personally seen a white Civic with scissor doors and it looks manic. Fell in love with it, and my friend liked the idea too. Any idea how much the scissor doors cost (only front, I assume?)

3. Is there anyone who incorporates turn indicators on the stock ORVM's? I've seen a few modifications but the mirror isn't stock, its an aftermarket chrome-finished mirror which IMO cheapens the look of the car overall.

Thanks in advance for help. I hope I have posted in the right thread. My apologies to the mods if i've erred.

the white one with scissors is in dadar..they scissors cost around 30-40 thousand..atleast that is what i have heard

hi, if your friend wants all the above, then why is he going in for the "s" variant. in "v" u get fantastic leather seats, i think its nappa, turn indicators on ORVM's, fog lamps, all factory fitted. then why does he wanna go for aftermarket.

You can save close to 20k if you get all these done on S model.

Civic 1.8's are known to churn out 200 BHP with ECU upgrades alone. I had seen a present gen civic on the net ( don't remeber the site ) dyno tested to 243 BHP with an 8 Psi turbo and an ECU remapped by Performance Chip.

The stock seats on V variant are not Napa, they are the mid range leather. Even Accord/Camary category does not have Napa on any brand.

Napa is very fine soft leather which is also somewhat delicate and hence most cars do not have that as standard fitment. This is reserved for only high end cars. (high means high)...

I guess you are mistaking it for K20 2.0 ltr DOHC engine focused on performance. Indian Civic has R18A 1.8 ltr engine focused on economy with dash of performance. I am not sure if there are any branded chip remaps available as of now for R18A (at least the Hondata hasn;t got one yet), the same goes for the turbo - there are no branded kits for R18 available yet. I know of a Chinese kit which boasts about 230bhp but their claims are not verified by anyone yet, and I am not sure if I would want a Chinese turbo on my car!

R18 is a very new engine and in most other countries CIvic is sold with K20 engine also. So the performance oriented go for K20 engine and the After market industry is more focused on extracting more from K20. It will take time for them to focus on R18 engine and come up with some standard kits.

All said I believe once the kit and the turbo is out it should be possible to reliably achieve 200 BHP for a daily driver.

Red face

two whole days and my posts are still not visible (i dont know if this is normal). and unreliable internet connection. man i hate being a newbie! i typed out so much and it doesnt show up here. so now i'll just make this reply short.
  • civic s+stanley+orvms = substantially cheaper than civic v.
  • somehow i did not like the leather on the civic. nor does my friend. stanley is stanley.
  • scissor doors have been ruled out. anyway i finally saw a column in business today suppliment dated 8th feb. stated 65k for "single shocker set" and 1lac for "double shocker set". what do these things mean?


i apologize for such a short and seemingly curt reply. i thank you all for your contributions in this matter. the civic s is finalized. it will go to stanley boutique soon after.

hi ,i have fixed the same projector type headlamps onto my civic just recently with both hi and low beams with xenon lamps, but the problem after installing them is that the low beam works on the inner projectors and high beams on the outer ones. thus resulting to the low beams giving a very bright light discharge as compared to the high beams. does these headlamps work this way or is it a error in installing the same??. i need a clarfication on this please.

The inner lamps are reflectors whereas the outer are projectors which are more suited to xenons. The low beam should be in the outer projectors since it will be much more focused there. The high beams should be in the inner reflector. The ones in the reflector will look brighter since the light from it is more dispersed.

ash5555 your beams are fitted the other way around, get the connections switched. The outer projectors are for low beams and the inner beam is for high.

thanks a lot for the reply, so is it advised to go in for xenons on both(low and high beams) or only xenon on the low beams and halogen for the high beams.

get xenons for the low beams and halogens for the high beams. the reason being that you normally would use high beams to flash. the xenons take a few seconds to warm up.
